Share your views on proposed transit cuts

Proposition 1, the ballot initiative that would have provided funding for King County Metro Transit, failed to pass in April. This means that Metro Transit will move forward with a plan to significantly reduce service throughout Seattle and surrounding areas. Most routes will see service scaled back, and some will be eliminated altogether. This is particularly concerning to Seattle Central College, where many students and employees rely on regular and reliable transit service to commute to and from campus. For more information on the proposed plan, visit http://metro.kingcounty.gov/am/future/index.html.

The King County Council has scheduled public hearings on the proposed cuts. The Council may elect to amend the plan based on feedback and testimony from the public. This is an opportunity for those affected by the cuts to communicate their views about this important issue.

Three hearings are scheduled:

Union Station – Ruth Fisher Boardroom
401 S. Jackson St.
5:30 p.m. – sign in/open house; 6 p.m. – public testimony

Bellevue City Hall – City Council Chambers
450 110th Ave. NE
5:30 p.m. – sign in/open house; 6 p.m. – public testimony

Renton Pavilion Event Center
233 Burnett Ave. S.
5:30 p.m. – sign in/open house; 6 p.m. – public testimony

More information on the public hearings can be found at http://www.kingcounty.gov/council/issues/TransitCuts.aspx.

Individuals can also provide written testimony online: http://www.kingcounty.gov/council/testimony.aspx.
